What a dynamic presentation! The audience was hooked within minutes of her beginning, and on their feet, clapping with enthusiasm, when she ended her presentation. What was especially impressive was Pegine’s ‘homework’ in getting to know her audience. She was able to discuss very ‘ego-bruising’ issues in a highly professional and positive manner. What a class act! We would recommend Pegine Echevarria to any audience…

I thoroughly enjoyed your talk about how to be a strong woman in the new millennium! I think, too often, I as a woman am too soft spoken or tender hearted when I need to stand up for myself. Thanks for putting things into perspective. You are an electric person with great ideas for motivation and self-help.
